Darcey previously appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days with her now-ex Jesse Meester.

Below is what was shown on the second episode of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ fourth season:

Geoffrey was heading to the airport to travel to Russia to meet his girlfriend Varya in-person for the first time. They had met five months prior, and Geoffrey believed they were going to have an instant connection.

Geoffrey admitted to his teenage sons he was “nervous” about the meeting. Geoffrey was experiencing a lot of emotions, especially since his one-year-old son from his previous marriage had died, but he felt he deserved happiness and hopefully Varya could help him find that.

Geoffrey wanted a woman by his side with whom he could enjoy life and positive experiences. Geoffrey said if it took traveling halfway across the world to be happy, then that’s simply what it takes.

His sons Paxton and Dakota, however, thought their father was caught up in a fantasyland.

Geoffrey had also hadn’t been honest with Varya about his past, and he worried she wouldn’t accept him once she learned the truth.

Geoffrey said that he grew up poor and dealt drugs in order to make money. When Geoffrey was eventually caught, he was sentenced to 30 months in prison.
